Kicking off the week with this amazing sunrise at Canyonlands National Park in Utah. This photo was captured by Ryan Engstrom on the Mesa Arch Trail — a popular place to capture the sunrise over the park’s countless canyons and fantastically formed buttes carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries.

Seen on an early morning patrol in Arches National Park: a cottontail transfixed with fear, a snake still too sluggish to strike, and a chipmunk chirping its fool head off.What happened next, you ask? The bunny hopped away, the patrol ranger escorted the snake safely out of the road, and the chipmunk bored quickly and left. Undramatic, as nature often is — when not scripted for TV.Photo: National Park Service

Happy Father’s Day everyone. We want to share this amazing story of James and Jonah Geier (as told by James’ daughter Laura Geier). Celebrating Dads like James is what Father’s Day is all about."Perseverance. Shared by both the Arch in withstanding time and change, and the resolve of a father to hike his disabled son to the Arch to experience the incredible symbol of natural beauty and strength. Retired Law Enforcement Officer James Geier hiked his eighteen year old son Jonah Geier three miles, and 480 feet over slickrock trails, and up red rock steps to share with Jonah a worldwide symbol of strength and endurance. Neither Geier nor Arch is deterred by challenges."
